King Solomon's Mines, first published in 1885, was a best-selling novel by the Victorian adventure writer H. Rider Haggard. It relates a journey into the heart of Africa by a group of adventurers led by Allan Quatermain in search of the legendary wealth said to be concealed in the mines of the novel's title. It is significant as the first fictional adventure novel set in Africa, and is considered the genesis of the Lost World literary genre. - Haggard wrote over 50 books, among which were 14 novels starring Allan Quatermain.

Subject: Fantastic!!!
This is a classic take and the reader does a great job. He sounds like Billy Bob Thorton! I am really starting to appreciate the internet archive. Like Quartermain, there are many treasures to find for someone who takes the time to look.

This is an adventure tail in the classic form. It is exciting and full of action, from fending off wild animals right through to terrible battles.

The characters are well developed and you get to feel for them as they go through their various struggles. What struggles they are! Perhaps the story takes a little while to get going, but it's not long and it's worth the wait because you will find yourself drawn into the book scene by scene.

Well worth a listen, and very well read.

Subject: Very Fun!
This was a very entertaining story and the reader did an excellent job! If you like death defying adventure tales you should love this one. One of the things that I love about Haggard's book is the introduction and use of native African language.
